In the afternoon, the surroundings become silent. Dukul’s chest trembled. Sushantka looked at Dada’s dry face and fell asleep. Mother’s eyes are very worried. Father has not yet returned from the haat shop. Dukul’s chest felt like a stone when he thought about what was going to happen.
Father’s eyes and face are afraid. Parents have been whispering to mom for days. “The war against the Pakistanis has started in the country. Freedom fighters are fighting for freedom everywhere. Dosar Chairman members of Pakistanis are creating Razakar Bahini in villages and bringing Pakistani soldiers to villages. Houses are burning,People are being shot and killed all the time…..।’
Dukul became silent after hearing some of these words. Hai Halla Duddar doesn’t run around like before. Sushantka sat down–Dukul, why did you become so silent?? Dukul said with a trembling voice–Uncle country condition is not good I hear that some day Pakistani army along with Razakars will attack our village. Thinking about assisted living–Where do we go after leaving the house? I have not seen the face of my parents. Then what will happen to us?!
Earlier in the afternoon, Mukul was in the courtyard of Sushant’s uncles, Dukul, the life, sanat, Babul, ashu, jesus, Purification, war treasure, Order, how many more friends would come, there would be lots of games and cheers. No one comes now. No one leaves the house anymore. Everyone is now spending their days in fear. When does that happen?! Everyone has the same problem.
Even when father comes home, he doesn’t gossip about his siblings like before. He does not speak out of his mouth. Dukul thought that the fear and instability inside the father, who knows what will happen when.
Seeing his father’s upset condition, Dukul does not dare to say anything to his father easily. If father gets angry. mother says-‘Do not go out of the house, your father is not in a good mood.’
Dukul has already heard about the stubbornness of the Pakistani rulers at school. They will claim Bengali as they want without accepting the rightful demand of Bengali,It will absorb day after day and many more days.
After hearing this, the parents and their parents are worried and wonder why we will tolerate the atrocities of the Pakistanis and why they will kill and loot the country.
The Bengalis went to war in two different ways– Freedom fighters took up arms. The freedom fighters will fight and defeat the Pakistanis right now. Everyone will smile. No one will care.
Dukul also tells his mother. Mother tells Dukul’s father so many things about his son. Baba pulls Dukul to his chest. He clapped his hands on his head. He could see the light of hope even in his terrible thoughts. It seems as if their little family has grown up a lot now, He learned to think a lot.
But to whom will Dukul tell his thoughts. Tell your father, tell mother, Will tell younger sister? No matter who he tells, nothing can be fixed. Thinking about everything, the little family is no longer that little. Understands a lot. Pakistanis are talking about injustice and torture,Horrible behavior of Pakistani soldiers, attacks, killings and destruction. Brutal behavior.
Mother was shocked to see the mood of Dukul’s few days of relaxation. Calculate what happened to the two families. Why was Dukul so silent?? Does not play much with younger sister. What happened to Dukul? He doesn’t even talk to anyone. Where did his happy smile go?
After a few days, one day, the two families face their mother. The mother war speaks volumes about the independence of Pakistan,Some of his mother understands and some doesn’t. But the mother was surprised to hear all that. Dukul says to his mother–The mother listens to her son and she will go to war and take up arms for the freedom of the country,The invaders will chase Pakistanis out of this country. After hearing this, he did not speak to his mother. The mother looked at Adar Dukul in surprise.
